Did Jesus Die on a Cross?

According to the Quran, Jesus did not die on the Cross. What is the story?

The gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were written about 550 years before the time of Muhammad and contain the testimony of people who were followers of Jesus Christ. They lived close to Jesus for a number of years. Some of these students were personally present at His crucifixion.

If you read the reports (the gospels, injil) of these followers of Jesus Christ without any prejudice, then it will be clear to you that that Jesus himself died on the cross, after that He was dead in a grave for 3 days and then rose from the dead.

In the time of Muhammad, the Bible was only just translated into Arabic and it is very likely that Muhammad did not own a Bible. Instead, he heard stories about Jesus and the prophets, derived from mythical writings; and these writings were influenced by the theological prejudices of non-christian people.

For example, some people believed that Jesus was not really a human being, but a kind of spirit that could not suffer pain and death. Long before the time of Muhammad, this “prejudice” gave rise to the legend that it was someone else who looked like Jesus who had been crucified. But the story has no historical basis.

In order to convince yourself of the historical correctness of the crucifixion and death of Jesus, all you have to do is study the text of the gospels (injil), presenting a detailed eyewitness report of what has happened.
